Inside this tin shell, there is no heaven or hell, just a void, a dark space inside, where my soul goes to hide, it feels so long ago that this inside died, leaving no trace, only ice, in this dark place. I looked long ago for life in this deserted cell, but, found only my heart, cold as ice, cryogenic island hanging in the vastness of this empty shell, no stories will it tell.

Before the wasteland; came the anger, the hurt, the torment that had nowhere to venture, but ripped the inside as it sat and cried. Made the mojo go, feelings come and go like a yo-yo. Slowly drifting, running out, leaking feelings, all over the place, until there are no more to seep onto the floor, just a heart to seize and freeze.

Contemplate a thaw, to open that door and let those demons and feelings return to this tin shell start to burn and swell, to thaw my heart making a fresh start, new blood racing to my heart. Yet deep within, it knows not how to fill the void, can’t let go of how life has always been. Deep inside, where darkness and claustrophobia reside, there will always be a space so wide, full of darkness, for me to hide.

  1. You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I would by no means understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very wide for me. I’m taking a look forward to your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!

    1. Thank you for your kind words. The poem sometimes comes easy and sometimes it struggles to get out on the paper.. understanding it for me is easy as it comes from within however my hope is n9t that you unde4stand where in me it came from but to be able to interpret what the poem means to you and that it connects. I hope to get further stuff published this year with possibility of a couple of books.
